Enjoy the Snow...and the Last Week of the Snow Season at Hotham



It may feel like summer elsewhere but it’s “snow time” at Hotham until the end of next week.

With a natural snowdepth base of 62cm, 6 lifts in operation and lots of nice weather days ahead, Spring is a fabulous time to visit the mountains. Sunny conditions, soft snow (good for falling over!), huge discounts on accommodation, value season lift tickets, kids ski free packages and uncrowded slopes provide a perfect environment in which to learn, have some fun at the snow and make final turns for Season 09.

To celebrate the end of Season 09 and to give holidaymakers even more reason to squeeze in a Springtime sojourn, Hotham will host its Spring Carnival from 23 - 27 September. The action-packed schedule means fun for every visitor.
